  • 1960’s Home Remodeled to Enhance and Update its Original Personality

Last updated on January 1, 1970

We recently completed a remodeling project in which we updated an entire home that was built in 1964.  This home had never been modernized since it was built, so it had a great personality reflective of the early 60’s.  Our goal was not to change the personality of the home, but to enhance its individuality through updating and enhancing.  For example, we strived to keep original light fixtures found throughout the house unless, for some reason, they were not authentic or could not be salvaged due to damage or code requirements.  The beautiful walnut hardwood floors, which lost much of their personality over the years, were refinished back to their original, natural finish.  The kitchen, hall bathroom and primarybathroom were completely remodeled.  Gayle was sure to maintain the contemporary aspect of these areas within the design, while offering the new homeowner all the conveniences he desired.

Right now you can see some pictures of the before pictures of some areas of this home, as well as a look at some of the original lighting that are still found in this home.

Over the next few weeks, we will feature each bathroom and the kitchen with before and after pictures.

Hope you enjoy the tour!

PS—We did not keep the macramé light fixture!
